Approximately 20% of Australian adults experience a common mental illness each year. Completing an MHFA Course will help you to develop the skills to support a friend, family member or co-worker.

Having mental health first aid skills means that you can assist someone developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis and make a real difference to your community.

The Mental Health First Aid program has been licensed by organisations all over the world. Over 2.6 million people have been trained, with tens of thousands more joining the MHFA community every year.

Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Australia is a national not-for-profit health promotion charity focused on mental health training and research.
